Product description

Review

A delicate, crystalline, hugely impressive novel by Karl Geary. He's yet another masterful younger writer coming through. But these writers aren't just promising, they are arriving fully fledged, like a bunch of Hemingways and Waughs. (A pride of Hemingways?) This is language on the side of life, suggesting life, giving life. Wonderful. -- Sebastian Barry

Intensely powerful., Sunday Mirror

Luminous…brilliantly paced, full of tension and tenderness., Irish Times

Few novelists debut with a masterpiece, but Geary has done just that. Stunning., Mail on Sunday

Montpelier Parade is haunting – a portrayal of loneliness that is eerily beautiful and desperately moving -- Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies

Luminous and moving. A story that asks who you can love and how, and a novel that gets to the heart of things; it certainly got to the heart of me. -- Sunjeev Sahota

A genuine talent., Daily Mail

The precision in his prose bellies his training as a scriptwriter; the plot unfolds with self-assured ease, and the dialogue lives on the page… He trusts his reader, and the novel has compulsive power because of it. An astonishing debut. -- Calen O'Hanlon, Skinny

A groundbreaking debut. Montpelier Parade is a taut, riveting, beautifully sparse coming of age tale from a fearless new talent -- Téa Obreht, National Book Award Finalist & New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger's Wife

I hope that someone will give me an advance copy… I’ve heard it’s lyrical, brave and inventive – everything I look for in a novel. -- Maggie O'Farrell, Observer, Book of the Year

Book Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA FIRST NOVEL AWARD 2017
